A Happy Life

Designer life, Inspired life, My life


Review – 2016 Amelia Lane Life Designer

We are proud to introduce another Australian planner, The Amelia Lane Life Designer. This planner is aimed at planning your ‘whole’ life. Use it across your work and personal life to help with budgeting, goals, meal and exercise planning or simply as the name suggests, use it to Design the Life you want to live.

This planner would make a beautiful gift, as it comes lovingly presented in black timeless keepsake box. I mean really, who wouldn’t be delighted to unwrap it! I am a sucker for packaging boxes & tins… oooh packaging. The whole look of the Amelia Lane Life Designer is very classic with black & white imagery and classic quotes throughout, with hints of gold & blush pink. It makes for a very beautiful book.

Now onto the details…. Although this isn’t a Day to a Page planner, I have included it because of the way that it is set out. There is a weekly double page spread with a 1/3 of a page for each day, however it also has a weekly double page spread for Meals & Exercise – set up in a grid. For me personally, I could easily see myself using this section for planning my work days and being able to see my weekly list of jobs at a glance does have it’s advantages. I also love the fact that it goes a little bit further with a Vision Board Worksheet and then it follows that up with 12 Goal Action Worksheets with action steps and deadline dates – love having a dated deadline!

  • Set-up: Week to a double page spread + double page spread for meals/exercise
  • Spiral Bound /205mm x 215mm – Page Size 140mm x 210mm
  • Handy monthly tabs make it easy to flip between dates
  • Monthly Expenses and Budget Tracker
  • Vision Board Worksheet and 12 Goal Action worksheets
  • Monthly Calendar view
  • Australian Public Holidays!
  • Dated for 2016
  • Cost: $49.95 AU + Postage in Aust: $15 (free shipping for orders over $100)

It is available from the Amelia Lane Paper online store which is full to the brim with beautiful stationery, lovely greeting cards, notepads and art prints – it would be very easy to bump your order up to $100 and get free shipping. Stay tuned for my next review of a different style of planner the Daily Greatness Business Planner.

This is not a sponsored post. All opinions in this article are mine and relate to how the planner would be suitable for my purposes. All prices are in Australia dollars unless otherwise stated and are correct at the time of publication.
